We go to Blue Point every other month or so for consistent meals. Every kind of fish you can think of is served on this menu but i almost always order the "suzuki mulloway" which is a white flakey fish much like a sea bass. It's not cheap and it gets very loud on a Friday or Saturday night but... More

The focus here is on seafood. The restaurant is a bit loud and simply furnished, but the food is great. There is a wide variety shellfish and fish. The oysters were excellent. I would have preferred more horseradish in my cocktail sauce and more black pepper in the migonette. The fish can be ordered blackened or simply pan roasted. Either... More

Instead of ordering two entrees, we split the Char and added three appetizers. The Char and mashed sweet potatoes were very tasty, but lacking in presentation. I would have also appreciated a vegetable included. The three appetizers we ordered were the Grilled Sardines, the Jalapeno & Lime Grilled Shrimp, and the Seared Tuna. All were good, but the Shrimp were... More

Blue Point Grill is our first choice in restaurants in Princeton. Yes, there can be a wait, but the fresh fish is worth it. Although children are always welcome, most of the patrons are adults. The food is outstanding!!!
